The Egyptian Revolution Explained


I am fairly confident that I am not the only one who has been embroiled over the past week in fierce Facebook debates regarding the most recent Egyptian uprising. That being said, I have noticed that there is a lot of confusion about what the revolution actually means, how politics in Egypt actually work, whether or not to consider it a coup, etc etc. In response to all of this confusion, I give you this video, which was giving to me by an Egyptian friend of mine. 

Note: While the video is slightly eccentric in style (and, in my opinion, terribly entertaining), it is actually highly informative and gives you a fantastic rundown of Egyptian politics and the history of the Egyptian uprising in about 8 minutes.
